scratch that they look gross

I dont see the point in overmolding the clamps like that, all it means is you pretty much have flanges each end

The Eastons come in thick or thin

30mm or 33mm diameter

Lots of sweet colours too.

I use the Mechanix gloves. Super cheap on ebay and I use them in the workshop as well . She even has a pair for the Garden and reckons they're the best for that as well. Not done any summer riding with them though.

I have the 33mm ones. The overmoulding is pretty comfy under the hand...and I hardly notice the bump. It might be worse on the skinny ones?

I'm the same, ends are shredded first. Have ordered some odi attack grips to try out
